I obtained my Ph.D. in organic chemistry from UCSC. As a graduate student I taught both general chemistry and organic chemistry courses and also made extra money tutoring college and high school students. After getting my Ph.D. I worked as a research scientist in a few Bay Area startups. I really enjoyed the thrill of scientific discovery but something was missing from my life. Even though the research I was doing was useful, the effects of it could be seen thirty years from now or may be never at all. Tutoring is a chance for me to be useful right away. There is nothing more gratifying than when you see this light in student's eyes and hear the phrase: "I finally got it!"

I provide tutoring to pre-med college students in general and organic chemistry. These students are at tremendous pressure to succeed and I understand the stress they all are going through. I see my job as to provide the missing ingredients from their educational experience. For some the lecture or the book simply does not make sense. I will explain the concept in as many different ways as needed until the student gets it. For some more practice problems are needed and I am happy to provide as many problems as needed and guide the student through a solution.

I apply similar principles to working with high school students. I have a lot of experience in tutoring students for AP chemistry, honors chemistry, AP chemistry exam and SAT chemistry exam. A lot of times the way things are explained in class simply does not work for a student. I work together with the student to find the way that works best for him or her. During my tutoring sessions I engage a student by asking questions and guiding her or him to the answer. I do it at the pace that works for this particular person. We are all different and learn in different fashions. I see my job as to find the right way and to unlock that potential that I see in every students who comes to me.

Being a parent of a teenager can be very stressful and very busy and can involve lots of driving. To make parent's life easier I provide in-home tutoring for high school students.

I am looking forward to tutoring both high school and college students. Thank you for checking our my profile.

Best of luck,
Anna
